Job summary

• Do you want to make a really difference to some of the most vulnerable students in the city?
• Work at a brand new bespoke SEMH provision?
• Be part of the 45 million pound wider development of the academy across the city?
• Move away from the restrictions of a mainstream pathway?
• Have a passion for creative teaching and to be allowed the space to develop individuals with a more flexible curriculum than mainstream?

We require an exceptional teacher at our East site in Seacroft who is passionate about providing the best possible education and care for vulnerable students. You will be based at East site in one of our newly built SEMH buildings that opened only last year and is part of a wider 45 million pound investment across the city.

Springwell Leeds Academy is a new all through special school from key stage 1 to key stage 4 and as such, there is great potential for both support, professional development and promotion. All of our sites operate in line with best practise in an SEMH provision, which is a nurturing type curriculum model with significant investment in therapeutic and wrap around support for our students.

This position would suit a teacher with a proven track record of exceptional practice, who is able to work with vulnerable pupils with social, emotional and mental health difficulties (SEMH). It would suit an individual who is passionate about making a real difference to student’s life chances and supporting them in achieving their potential in essential life skills, which is a high priority for Springwell Leeds. The ability to be creative and use imaginative flair to engage is essential, along with having resilience, drive and high expectations to inspire students to achieve. We operate a primary type model and you would be working with a small group of students on a wide range of subject areas with specialists delivering subjects such as PE and Art. You will have the opportunity to work as part of a team with two teaching assistants and a care team in supporting the needs of these young people in your care.
